This coffee or side table is a great item by Wim Rietveld for the company of Gispen. In Holland the model also had the name 'Mug' which is 'Mosquito' in English. An iconic design to represent Dutch industrial design from this era. The base of this table is in excellent condition. The glass top does have a thing to it as can be seen on the pictures. There has been a small damage to the edge that has been polished to take away any sharp edges.
